Organized by London Palestine Action

17th April is Palestinian Political Prisoners’ Day, a global day of action for Palestinian prisoners.

There are 5,609 Palestinian political prisoners inside Israeli jails (B’Tselem, Feb 2015). Palestinians, living under occupation and oppression for nearly 67 years, have been targeted for mass imprisonment and detention by the Israeli occupation, and nearly every Palestinian household has been impacted by political imprisonment.

Prisoners are routinely ill-treated, tortured, and denied family visits. See for example this 2014 report from prisoner support organisation Addameer:

Join London Palestine Action by taking creative action to stand in solidarity with Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli prisons, by remembering these prisoners, and highlighting the complicity of private companies that profit from human rights abuses in detention.
